DVB vs. H/W:
DVB refers to digital TV, where as H/W refers to analog hardware MPEG2 TV cards (e.g. Hauppauge PVR250/350/150MCE). H/W cards contain a MPEG2 chip which alleivates work being done on the computer. They are quite well supported by MP, if they are on the supported list.

DVB-T is digital TV - terristrial. It is the standard that Aust uses for free-to-air digital TV. The most popular cards are the DNTV Live! card, Dvico cards/boxes, Hauppauge Nova-T.

DVB-S is digital TV - satellite, and DVB-C is digital TV - Cable (note: foxtel does not use this standard).

Finally, S/W refers to analog software TV cards (Hauppauge WinTV). These cards are usually the cheapest, but aren't supported very well in MP and require the computer to do a lot of work.

Good luck, I am really not too sure how well CAM and MP work together with any tuner. Just a thought would it not be cheaper to just buy another C1+ card then there would be no need to prioritise the tuners? BTW the TBS Deutschland website specifically states that C1+ cards are not supported but I think that is a local issue with the...
